Quantitative Cu(I) determination using X-ray absorption edge spectroscopy: oxidation of the reduced binuclear copper site in type 2 depleted Rhus laccase

, : Quantitative Cu(I) determination using X-ray absorption edge spectroscopy: oxidation of the reduced binuclear copper site in type 2 depleted Rhus laccase. Biochemical and Biophysical Research Communications 112(2): 737-745

We report a procedure, through difference comparison of X-ray absorption edge spectra, for the quantitative determination of Cu(I) content in copper complexes of mixed oxidation state composition. This technique is tested on copper model systems and then used to quantitatively determine that untreated T2D Rhus laccase contains 70 +/- 15% Cu(I). Whereas excess ferricyanide is demonstrated not to alter the Cu(I) content of the untreated T2D, aqueous peroxide and nitrite at pH 6.0 are shown to oxidize the cuprous type 3 site and generate met T2D protein forms.
